SHARE ON FACEBOOK

There are a couple of ways you can help on Facebook.

#1 Post on your own wall

Let them know how you feel about their decision to sell tobacco products. Family Dollar staff regularly monitor comments and write back, so it is especially important that your comments are respectful.

Some sample posts you can adapt:

Beauty products, children's clothing, and... cigarettes? Tell @Family Dollar that these products don't mix! http://familydollarvalues.com/

Smoking is the #1 cause of preventable death in the U.S., but @Family Dollar wants to help its customers get tobacco products more easily and cheaply. Tell Family Dollar that HEALTH is a family value! http://familydollarvalues.com/

Tobacco is the only legal product that when used as intended will harm or kill you. Join me in telling @Family Dollar that there's nothing family-friendly about selling tobacco: http://familydollarvalues.com/

In whatever post you create, be sure to tag them with @Family Dollar so they will know you're talking about them. You can find some additional talking points on our Get The Facts page.

#2 Post on their wall

Let Family Dollar know how you feel in a direct, but respectful manner.

Some sample posts you can adapt:

After 53 years of being a tobacco-free business, stick to what works. Support customers like me and my family by remaining tobacco-free.

Tobacco use is not a family value. Do what's best for your customers and reverse your decision to sell tobacco products.

Tobacco is the only legal product that when used as intended will harm or kill you. Selling tobacco makes you part of the tobacco epidemic!

Smoking is the #1 cause of preventable death in the U.S. Selling tobacco products makes you part of the problem; it hurts your customers!

Why are you partnering with Big Tobacco to target lower income customers? This is wrong!

Target stopped selling tobacco in 1996. Wegmans stopped in 2008. Don't reverse this positive trend by starting to sell tobacco products in 2012!

Greater access and lower prices are Big Tobacco's dream come true. Whose side are you on: Big Tobacco or your customers?
